Air travel in China continues strong recovery

Air travel in China continues to surge with a significant increase in scheduled flights across the country. In late October, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) reported a 34 per cent growth in domestic flights, surpassing pre-pandemic levels.

This expansion led to the introduction of over 500 new domestic routes and up to 7,200 weekly flights during the period from 29 October 2023 to 30 March 2024. International business and leisure travellers will be able to choose from 150 airlines, delivering a total of 16,680 flights per week, to 68 destinations.

The nation’s capital will enjoy greater connectivity with an increase in the number of flights to/from Frankfurt, London and Paris, as well as new planned routes between Beijing and San Francisco and Beijing and Baku.

The number of direct passenger flights between China and the US is also expected to rise from 48 to 70 per week during the forthcoming winter-spring flight season. This has led to a noticeable decrease in ticket prices, with some fares in November being half of what they were at the beginning of the year.

Major Chinese airlines such as Air China, Beijing Capital Airlines, China Eastern, China Southern, Hainan Airlines, Sichuan Airlines and Xiamen Airlines are preparing for further expansion of routes to the US and other destinations.
